With so much focus on how private equity firms build and develop their portfolio companies, the topic of how these same firms manage and finance their own growth is sometimes overlooked.
Private equity firms may require finance in a number of different areas, including GP commitments for flagship funds, expansion into new strategies or geographies, and succession planning. In addition to traditional debt and equity solutions, a new option has emerged in recent years in the form of preferred equity portfolio finance, and its flexibility and versatility means it is becoming an increasingly important financing tool for private equity firms’ CFOs’.
Please register your interest in attending below. Attendance is subject to confirmation only.

Culture is a broad subject that captures ethics, creativity, discipline, flexible working, ambition etc. It is increasingly a key component considered by future employees when looking to join a business. Culture drives the decisions of management as regards partners, acquisition targets etc.
Whilst it can often be dismissed as “fluffy”, culture, in its broadest sense, cannot be ignored. Culture is at the heart of the business. It speaks to employee engagement - which works both ways: you provide an engaging and rewarding environment for your staff and they will return the favour with loyalty and hard work.
